Health SPOTLIGHT!- Dallas

For this SPOTLIGHT piece, I wanted to introduce someone that is truly making a name for herself in the Fitness world! Someone, like many of us... has a story that is motivating and touching.

Ladies and Gents, meet Carragan Langley! A local beauty turned  bikini competitor, and a highly demanded personal trainer. I have personally known Carragan for over 4 years and I have witnessed her journey from an average gym patron to the woman you see today! So in order for you to get to know a little more about her, I decided to ask her a few questions!

1. What made you want to change your lifestyle for the better?

"It all started about 3 1/2 years ago when i walked into 24 hour fitness and made the decision to make a change and stop with the "I'll start tomorrow" excuse. About 4 1/2 years ago I had a bad back injury which led to me quitting sports and creating unhealthy habits. My eating habits were far from a healthy lifestyle. Before you know it I was 80 pounds heavier than I am today. When I first walked into that gym I was a fish out of water and now that gym is my home.  I started  training with a great trainer and within the first month of working out and changing my diet I lost 20 pounds. Nothing feels better than surpassing your goals and knowing that all your hard work and persistence has paid off. Since the start of my fitness journey I have had this mad passion for fitness and taking care of my body (physically, mentally, and spiritually). "

2. What made you want to do a competition? What did you like most about competing? What place did you take?

"If anyone knows me they know I like a challenge. I choose to compete not just for the physical aspect, but I wanted to conquer myself and push my self past my limits. Anyone who has competed knows that it takes more than just a love for working out. It takes willpower, perseverance, and control over your mind. The thing I liked most about competing was the strength I gained within throughout the process of prep. I conquered myself and carried on the willpower and mind control in my everyday life. 
My first competition I ended up placing top 3 and I am currently planning my next show."     

3. What do you hope your clients get from your knowledge and expertise?

"I want to transform lives like I did my own. I hope to lead them to a healthy lifestyle and create healthy habits that will carry on with them forever. I want to help them reach all of the goals they have set and overall gain confidence in themselves. In return I need them to give me 110 percent not only while I'm training with them, but also when I'm not there to make sure they are following there nutritional program or make sure they get their workout in."

4. To get your day going, what is your go-to breakfast?

"My go-to breakfast usually consists of 
 1/2 cup of oatmeal -uncooked (depending on my goals at the time, amount may differ) 
1/4 cup of blueberries 
4 egg whites (with picante sauce) "
